Instructional Pathways

Dr. Robert Marzano

In a manner that is unprecedented in prior years, our K-6 teachers have spent many hours working together to deliberately study, collaborate upon, and apply research-based theories and practices. Wednesday in-service times as well as vertical meetings were fully utilized for this purpose. One such example is our recent book study of “The Art and Science of Teaching” by Dr. Robert J. Marzano.  

Dr. Marzano is a well-respected and closely followed leader in education today. 

Dr. Carol Ann Tomlinson

A critically valuable resource is that of Dr. Carol Ann Tomlinson and her extensive body of work.  As a University of Virginia education professor and renowned author and speaker, Dr. Tomlinson is well known for her innovative work with differentiated instruction and education techniques.  Her theory that we must work to accommodate and build upon diverse learning needs is well-suited to our dynamic and ever-changing world.  Differentiation is a critical component in supporting every student’s ability to read, comprehend, think, and express deeper understandings in written form.  

She is best known for her innovative work with differentiated instruction and education techniques.
